Sun Star Bacolod - - Top Stories -

EIGHT per­sons were ar­rested in a buy-bust at Barangay Mam­bu­lac in Si­lay City, Ne­gros Oc­ci­den­tal, which re­sulted to the re­cov­ery of P300,000 worth of sus­pected shabu Thurs­day, Jan­uary 31.

Su­per­in­ten­dent Noel Po­lines, city po­lice chief, iden­ti­fied the tar­get sub­jects as Noriel Peromin­gan, 21, and his aunt Geniveb Solano, 35, both res­i­dents of the said vil­lage. Both are tar­get listed drug per­son­al­i­ties.

Also ar­rested were newly-iden­ti­fied drug per­son­al­i­ties Alvin Rey Bar­bas, 35; Audie Fer­rer, 35; Danilo Jimiera, 53; Roy Toledo Hil­langga, 43; Juli­eta Taño, 40; and Geniveb’s sis­ter Ana Mar­garita Solano, 31, a level three high-value tar­get, who were all caught in­side the house of Peromin­gan’s grand­mother dur­ing the op­er­a­tion.

They were prob­a­bly there for a trans­ac­tion or to get sup­ply, Po­lines said.

Po­lice re­cov­ered from them 14 sa­chets of sus­pected shabu (metham­phetamine hy­drochlo­ride) weigh­ing 20 grams, weigh­ing scale, drug para­pher­na­lia, the P500 marked money, P3,500 boo­dle money, and a cel­lu­lar phone.

Po­lines said Ana Mar­garita is re­port­edly un­der the drug ma­trix of Si­lay’s high-value tar­get Michael Div­ina­gra­cia while Peromin­gan is Div­ina­gra­cia’s al­leged drug courier and trusted man.

Peromin­gan dis­trib­utes his sup­ply to dif­fer­ent ar­eas in the prov­ince and Ba­colod City, Po­lines said.

Div­ina­gra­cia re­mains at large.

Peromin­gan and Geniveb will be fac­ing charges for sale and il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of dan­ger­ous drugs, and il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of drug para­pher­na­lia while the other sus­pects will be charged for il­le­gal pos­ses­sion of dan­ger­ous drugs.

All sus­pects are de­tained at Si­lay City Po­lice Sta­tion./ GYM
